Spike Jonze Imagines The Future Of Artificial Intelligence, Mobile Design, Love, And Pants In “Her”

In Her, Spike Jonze creates a completely new vision of the future. Just not new in the way you might expect.

When we speak, cinematically, about technology and our future, it is often in menacing tones. Our future movie selves tend to get malevolent things implanted in our bodies. Our cities are dark hellscapes where human survivors of something cower, or sleek utopias where individual will is crushed by the giant corporations that now control all lifeforms. In his new feature, Jonze portrays a different, nicer kind of future, yet his film still deals with a menace that we absolutely know will haunt our tomorrows—loneliness, the longing to connect completely, and the difficulty of doing so.
